We spent a couple days last month cabin camping at Cama Beach. It’s part of a state park and they have some tiny cabins that were built in the 1930s. They were out of use for a number of years, and then around 10 years ago the park refurbished them and started renting them out again. They are small and basic but a perfect step up from tent camping. We sprung for the “deluxe” cabin which has a toilet and shower. They also have a microwave and fridge, and a small bedroom with one bed, plus a twin with trundle in the main area. We went with our good friends and got cabins next to each other. We were able to share meals and the kids could go back and forth easily. We lucked out and got wonderful weather–warm and sunny, with just one round of rain overnight on our second night. The cabins are right on the beach, so we spent lots of time walking along the shore. The kids loved throwing rocks in the water and playing on the driftwood. I have fond memories of walking on driftwood logs when visiting this area growing up, so it was very special to see my own kids enjoying that same thing. We are already looking forward to next summer’s return visit!
I took a ton of pictures, and though I did narrow it down for this post, there are still a lot of photos below!
Some of the amazing natural beauty:
Fun by the camp fire. The kids had their first s’mores, which were a hit, though Max preferred to eat just the chocolate and graham cracker components. Angel made a yummy dessert on the campfire with chocolate cake baked inside oranges.
Lots and lots of outdoor fun. In addition to plenty of beach time, we hiked, found a small playground, and the guys took the big kids out on a boat one afternoon. Such a great place!
